Briefing the technicals, the GBP/USD is slated to face calculated resistance at 1.5255. On the decline, a break below 1.5089 will trigger supportive measures at 1.5041 and 1.5006.

While capped by the 1.5269 June 2012 low, we will maintain an immediate bearish bias”. The expert added that a close below 1.5101 (20-day moving average) would trigger further downside to the 1.500 area en route to 1.4832.
